ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to the U.S. government's immigration policies and its effort to check the use of undocumented workers in the construction industry. Unauthorized workers employed at sensitive sites and critical infrastructure facilities pose serious homeland security threats. Thus, the Department of Homeland Security has stepped up its operation at construction sites, including one on June 14, 2006 that resulted in the arrests of 55 illegal aliens at Dulles International Airport near Washington D.C.
